Movie Genre Cliches

I am currently studying the action genre. Some of the things that happen in every action movie are:

  • Always ends up saving the bad guy
  • Fights (Gun, Fist, Weapon)
  • One-liners (Trash Talk)
  • Good Cop, Bad Cop

I thought it would be a fun exercise to try and illustrate with this video. Check it out: img_3784

Best Movies from 2008 to 2016

2008 – Step Brothers: I chose this movie because it is a really funny movie and one of the best movies in 2008.

2009 – Zombieland: I chose this movie because it combined zombies, humour, and drama all into one of my favourite movies.

2010 – Kick Ass: I chose this movie because it is one of my favourite superhero movies because it’s funny, has good fight scenes and it curses.

2011 – Captain America The First Avenger: I chose this movie because it was basically the introduction to the MCU universe.

2012 – The Avengers: This movie was my favourite movie in this year because it was the first movie with all of the heros together fighting as one.

2013 – The Wolf of Wall Street: I chose this movies because its one of my favourite movies, because it consists of nudity, drugs, foul language, money, and other illegal acts, but it also what the effect of drugs and alcohol can do to a person.

2014 – Gone Girl: I only just recently watched this movie, and I’m glad I did, this is a fantastic movie about a crazy psychopath, murder mystery and crime.

2015 – Star Wars – The Force Awakens: The seventh star wars movie is amazing, even though I was skeptical at first, when I saw it I absolutely loved it. I loved everything about this movie: the cast, the plot, the actions scenes, everything.

2016 – Suicide Squad: The hype for this movie was incredible, even though it got pretty crappy reviews, I, along with thousands of other people, absolutely loved it, mainly because I love DC, but I also love the cast of the movie.
